    I know this isn't "This is...", but that is on Pipers Creek Road, near Boundary Road in Pipers Creek. I used to ride all around that way and visit Gaffneys Bakery in Heathcote quite regularly when I used to live down there.

    Bloody Hell MB, you're certainly covering some territory here in Central Victoria! AND a lot of the roads I would have taken you on anyway so maybe GA can fill in the gaps tomorrow and I'll catch you next time when you are in the district and we can get Miss Jane to lead us on one of her merry all day linked track escapades? As for bakeries, you haven't scratched the surface. Try Grist Sour Dough Bakery (in Willis's Mill) in Piper St KYtown for their interesting (but great) butter pastry pies - and Monsieur Pierre's in Mollison St for their Quiche Pies and Harper Lee Cafe at the other end of Mollison St for their great chicken pies? AND there are probably 4 other bakeries in the Town that do a reasonable pie/sausage roll (Piper Street Food Company's Pork Pies are a National Treasure but only on special occasions as their main ingredient is LARD). Maccas/KFC wouldn't stand a chance here, not that they'd be accepted, but we do have a under patronised Subway.

    The start of another glorious new day ......................................... a new day of glorious riding :ricky :wings

    Looking forward to catching up with a long lost, very capable "Time Traveler" if you believe post 3 :D, but then again errr!!!!! ....... sorry! ..... GoneAgain's ride reports :*sip* have been out of this world. :clap

    Wondering why this ride report is going up so fast, looking out the back window is a tower.

    Most annoyed I missed the ride. I returned to see Mr Tank Repairer yesterday, greeted him with a smile and asked how he was. His reply was "pissed". I will be too if he's stuffed the tank now.
